Racists and xenophobes are using “patriotism” and “The Constitution” to conceal their support for concentration camps and family separations. They are targeting Chicago for a “patriot pride” march because we have spoken out against violence at the border.

Standing up for human rights is not “disrespect.” Bigots cannot speak in the name of “freedom.” This fake concern for “values” must be exposed for what it is: a ploy to broadcast hate.

Don’t let racists hide behind the flag! Racists aren’t welcome in Chicago. Show them what this city supports: Close the concentration camps! We stand with activists & congresswomen defending human rights!

Gather at 11 am, counter-protest / rally and music to follow.

Join C&L and stand up against the “send-her-back” bigotry spewed by the “Patriot Pride” march. Bring your instruments – let’s make enough noise to drown out the hate!

It seems the president has forgotten what the rights of ALL Americans are… So let’s remind him, how loud freedom can ring…

Oct. 26th is the night of President Trump’s 2020 Gala at his hotel in Chicago. Let’s all come together to show the president that, while he might not remember what the rights of the American people are, we do.
We know that includes our rights to peaceful protest and free speech, even if he would seemingly prefer that we forget the whole “bill of rights” thing.

Stop Marriott’s Deportation Profiteering

Marriott has rented out its conference space by McCormick Place in Chicago to host a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) “trade symposium” Tuesday and Wednesday, July 23rd and 24th.

Show up with Chicago DSA’s Free Heartland Kids campaign to demand Marriott cancel this booking and end its profiteering off the deportation machine!

Just as Chicago’s Heartland Alliance and Maryville Academy accept millions of dollars a year from the federal government to detain and assist in deportations and ICE disappearances of hundreds of immigrant children, Marriott is accepting blood money from CBP to show this arm of the American Gestapo a good time and give them space to put on a trade show for their best ethnic cleansing methods.

We have a different idea of what Chicago hospitality looks like for concentration camp Kommandanten and the people who profiteer off them.

Come join us for any of these 6 time-slots in 2 different locations over the first three days of next week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday):

MONDAY (6/22) 11:30am-1:30pm AND 4:30-6:30pm @ Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile (540 N Michigan Ave)

TUESDAY (6/23) 11:30am-1:30pm AND 4:30-6:30pm @ Marriott Marquis Chicago (2121 S Prairie Ave)

WEDNESDAY (6/24) 11:30am-1:30pm AND 4:30-6:30pm @ Marriott Marquis Chicago (2121 S Prairie Ave)

We’ll be showing up at THE MARRIOTT ON MICHIGAN AVE on Monday, because Marriott as a whole is profiting off this CBP symposium, and we won’t let the company hide this shameful festival down by McCormick Place. Marriott as a whole is stained by this blood money, just as Heartland Alliance and all its programs are.

If Marriott still chooses to give quarter to CBP, we’ll be showing up at THE MARRIOTT BY McCORMICK PLACE on Tuesday and Wednesday to shame the profiteers as they work and to not allow CBP another peaceful welcome into our city.

We’ll also be operating organized call-ins to Marriott to demand they cancel their booking with CBP. More info on this will be posted in the Facebook event page discussion as well as on other CDSA channels.

Free Heartland Kids Friday Action

Hundreds of immigrant children are being detained in our backyard. Heartland Alliance is a Chicago-based nonprofit org that has historically focused on anti-poverty and immigration issues. Heartland currently operates 5 child detention centers and, until recently, 2 in Des Plaines. Currently, over 350 children are detained by Heartland.

The Chicago DSA Immigrants Rights Committee is fighting back.

Join us to continue demanding that Heartland and CEO David Sinski:
1. immediately cease intaking immigrant children into their detention centers;
2. immediately end their contract with the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) at the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to detain immigrant children;
3. release and reunify the immigrant children in their physical custody with their sponsors and families in the United States as soon as possible without sharing those sponsors’ and families’ biometric data, documentation status, or any other personal information with ICE or any agency that shares information with ICE;
4. pledge to use their resources and power to fight for a true detention-free, deportation-free, and ICE-free zone in Chicago and the Chicagoland area.

This is a nonviolent action. We especially do not want to put participants who may be vulnerable on account of their documentation status at risk of arrest during this action. Ultimately, of course, the relevant authorities are responsible for how they choose to respond to our nonviolent action, but it is important that participants understand that a nonviolent action is what the the Free Heartland Kids campaign is engaging in for this week.

ALL ARE WELCOME! We will have signs, banners, leaflets, petitions, chants, and more depending on the time and day. You can show up with nothing but your principles, and we will have material and information to offer you. If you would like to bring your own signs, banners, leaflets, petitions, chants, and more, we welcome them!

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) is having their annual trade symposium in Chicago.

Join us to tell CBP, ICE, and DHS there is no room for them Chicago!
